Post-Flight Saviours

You've previously seen the beauty bits which pad out my in-flight pouch, now it's time for the saviours post-plane ride - the part when me (and my skin) feel it most. After recently touching back down on UK turf, I had a mental image of a product lot which I just couldn't seem to shake off; the rehydrators, sleep aiders and illness savers. Bright-eyed and bushy tailed hours on, I only have this ritual to thank - here's how it goes...

Above all else, I see it in my peepers - pink, puffy and in need of a couple matchstick props - cue Liz Earle's Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion to give the bloodshot look a kick up the backside. A slosh on two oversized cotton pads, pressed on for 10 minutes is the way to go - usually a step in my morning routine, but when things are in this sorry state I'll welcome it before bedtime with open arms. Next up, a good slick of Clarins' Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil for dehydrated skins. And seeing as I've been slacking on water sipping as late (festive beverages, New Year's cheers and all that) I've noticed the suffering it's caused, and whilst up miles high things only go downhill in the way of dehydration. A trusty tube of Dr Lipp always comes along with me for the flight and gets slathered on pre-take off, but even post-landing I'll continue to crack it out as it prevents those dreaded dry patches - plus it does the job at keeping cracked cuticles at bay too.

Whether it be a night flight or day, I find myself reaching for the Faust's Potions Asleep Potion the next time I plan to kip - with a body clock all over the shop, and even for those of us who just love to snooze *raises hand* sleeping can become a struggle. Then the following wakeup call, I'll down the Faust's Potions Awake Potion in an attempt to jump start my normal routine, not to mention that these two turbo-boosted tubes are filled to the brim with minerals and vitamins to fight off those gross airborne germs. Another sleep deprived saviour is the This Works Sleep Balm a lavender-camomile scent to get rubbed on temples, but I'll take out a tiny scoop and massage it into the backs of my calves to calm achy legs. Lastly, I go wild spritzing the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray - *Ahhh* this stuff.. is... just...  zzZzZzzZz...
